Design and Build
The Xiaomi Redmi 9A has a glass front, plastic frame and plastic back which is to be expected at its price point. The back is plastic with a camera mount at the centre which houses the single camera and LED flash.
The colour options available are Carbon Gray, Sky Blue and Ocean Green. The Xiaomi Redmi 9A is not that big of a smartphone at 164.9 x 77.1 x 9 mm in size and weighs in at 196g so it should be easy to hand even for small hands.
The screen is an average at with the current trend at 6.53″ IPS LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and approximately 81.0% screen-to-body ratio. The pixels density is quite low at only 269ppi. The screen is bright at 400nits which should make viewing out in the sun a good experience.
User Interface and Performance
Xiaomi Redmi 9A is shipped with a custom UI, MIUI 12 which is built on top of Android 10 which should be able to upgrade to Andriod 11. It comes with a MediaTek Helio G25 (12 nm) chipset with an Octa-core CPU (4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.5 GHz Cortex-A53); and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU which should be good enough for low-end gaming. The Redmi 9A price in Kenya includes two variants, a 32GB with 3GB of RAM and a cheaper 32GB with 2GB of RAM. Both models have a dedicated microSDXC card slot for expandable storage needs.
The camera setup on the Xiaomi Redmi 9A consists of the main camera which is a single 13 MP, f/2.2, 28mm (wide), 1.0µm, PDAF. It has a LED flash that supports HDR. The selfie camera is a single 5 MP, f/2.2, (wide), 1.12µm which also supports HDR but no front-facing LED flashlight.
Xiaomi Redmi 9 records videos using the rear or main camera at only 1080p at both 30 and 60fps with no extra features. The selfie or front camera records video at 1080p@30fps.

The Xiaomi Redmi 9A comes with dual SIM slots using nano-SIM and supports dual standby which will help most usage.

Has GPS with A-GPS with GLONASS and BDS support. It however does not have NFC support. It supports USB Type-C 2.0 and USB On-The-Go.
The highlight of any modern smartphone features for a mid-ranger is the accelerometer and proximity the phone has the two options. It also comes with FM Radio support. No fingerprint sensor on the phone as that is reserved for the higher priced models.
The Redmi 9A has a non-removable battery with a capacity of Li-Po 5000mAh which supports charging at 10W which is however not fast charging. Do not expect support for wireless charging at the price of the phone.
